I had this problem on my 02 s60 after messing with the battery. The problem is that the computer is stupid and "forgets" how to manage the car if it completely loses power.
To retrain it you basically just drive the car. I've seen several sets of instructions but here's what works for me:
1. Start the car and let it idle until warmed up. 2. Using moderate throttle (don't floor it) get the car up to highway speeds. 3. Slow down to a complete stop. 4. Repeat 2-3 a few times if you're so inclined. 5. Done!
Skipping the highway part will work too, however, I've heard it can take much longer to retrain the computer (weeks to months depending on driving habits.)
not sure but i have a mercedes c180 and every time i take off the battery for whatever reason mine always stalls for about 50 to 100 miles as far as i can see it wipes the program on the cars ecu and afetr driving for a few miles it reprograms its self and rung great how long has it been doing this for and how many miles has it done since battery removed hope this helps ivan
the symtoms you describe sounds like a battery fault. but if you have had the battery properley tested and is good then you either have something discharging the battery intermittantly ie. trunk light staying on or a high resistance in the main battery leads or earth connections
the battery is located in the trunk underneath the floor. there should be a handle on the floor and you lift it up to get to the battery. there is a positive battery cable post under the hood near the driver side strut mount, next to the fuse box.
It more than likely may be the fuel pump. My girlfriend recently had the same problem with her S60 I came across a recall for the fuel pump. I took it by the dealers and they took care of it free of charge. The only negative thing I guess is that they kept it for a few days.
passenger side under car ,10mm socket ,remove bracket ,press in plastic retainer and pull filter or fuel line on both side,install new filter with arrow facing forward inside bracket, crank about 2 times and it should start
